Visiting Mamelodi Township School Library outside Pretoria S.A.

Visited Mamelodi Township today. My host was Dr. Leti Kleyn whose day job is running the open scholarship department at the Merensky Library at the University of Pretoria. In her spare time, among other charitable pursuits, Dr. Kleyn builds school libraries in township schools where books, adequate space, and electricity are often hard to come by. She advocates hard on behalf of the students to create beautiful spaces for them to read where there was none before. She is my hero. We also visited the library on the Mamelodi campus of the University of Pretoria.
